Abstract

The Homeric aorist infinitives in -έειν do not arise from a linguistic choice of an Ionian singer, but from his poetic performance; their origin is the 'distension' in two syllables of the Ionic ending -εῖν, possibly caused by the circumflex accent. In this perspective the aorist infinitives in -έειν are a specific case of the Homeric diektasis.
